Most Powerful Star Wars Characters


The Top Ten

1 Yoda Yoda Yoda is a fictional character in the Star Wars space opera franchise created by George Lucas, first appearing in the 1980 film The Empire Strikes Back.

For me, Yoda is the god of galaxies, my little green man

This list is for the most powerful, not favorite, Yoda is the most powerful

The most powerful jedi. Faster than he looks if you've played any games. - IronSabbathPriest

2 Darth Vader Darth Vader Darth Vader was the original dark lord for Star Wars. Darth Vader ruled with both fear and aggression. Originally Anakin Skywalker a young Jedi who was then seduced by the dark side of the force by Chancellor Palpatine/Darth Sidious. Vader had his limbs cut off by his jedi master Obi-Wan Kenobi leaving more.

He is the main character in Star Wars after all

Most powerful force ability is the force choke. The choke is a ability that causes little pain to the throats of victims and appears as if the throat is dancing. The victim will have a little more difficulty breathing but nothing dangerous and the victim can break the grip by prying off the invisible hand placed on their neck. Also gives the victim the opportunity to attack the user as they will waist so much of their energy on this power leaving them drained. Overall, not dangerous and can be broken by getting off the hand.

The force choke involves the user to use all their power to constrict the throat in which will cause he or she to cough and fight for air attempting to break this grip and stop the slight pain. Most of the time the victim's neck will be fine and will break this grip. That is why most sith don't use it in battle as it can be broken and can't even hurt the victim what so ever.

We should take a look at the force choke! It most of the time can do little more than be an annoyance as it casually dosen't have the power to snap a neck. Powerful force users can kill but requires great focus and some victims can kill the user while being strangled and even then sometimes cannot snap a neck. The force choke is just annoying and cannot really kill and doesn't usually have the power to harm the victims.

3 Darth Sidious Darth Sidious Sheev Palpatine (also known by his Sith identity Darth Sidious and publicly as Senator Palpatine, then Supreme Chancellor Palpatine, and later Emperor Palpatine) is a fictional character and one of the primary antagonists of the Star Wars franchise, mainly portrayed by Ian McDiarmid.

Darth Sidious number 10? This list is Dumb!

I like his power lighting strike

Worse list of powerful characters in star wars.Powerful character of star wars is Vitiate and how Padme Amidala can be powerful than Darth Sidious,Anakin Skywalker,General Griveous,Galen Marek,Mace Windu,...And how can Darth Vader be number 1.Where are Darth Revan,Darth Malak,Darth Malgus,Tulak Hord,...Worst list 'I found on earth not in star wars.

4 Palpatine

What emperor is on 4th place. What a rabish. He is most powerful. He is powerful than vader yoda kenobi.

5 Obi-Wan Kenobi Obi-Wan Kenobi Obi-Wan Kenobi is a fictional character in the Star Wars universe, played by Sir Alec Guinness and Ewan McGregor.

Obi won taught Luke sky walker and anakin sky walker and a few youngster he beat darth Vader count dooku darth maul general grievous and lots more sih lords he killed himself while fighting darthvader

6 Anakin Skywalker Anakin Skywalker Anakin Skywalker is a fictional character in the Star Wars franchise. He appears in the original trilogy as a main and pivotal antagonist serving the Galactic Empire, while his past as Anakin Skywalker and the story of his corruption are the focus of the prequel trilogy.
7 Mace Windu Mace Windu Mace Windu is a fictional character in the Star Wars universe, portrayed by actor Samuel L. Jackson in the prequel films.

Lol number 8? he beat sidious fair and square he should take sidious spot

He is such a bosss! He created Vaapad, and mastered ALL SEVEN styles of lightsaber combat. Not only is he the bestn lightsaber duelist of all time, he is also an EXTREMELY powerful force user who sould use the force crush, which Yoda couldn't. He beat palpatine/ sidious in a duel and was the second most senior member of the Jedi Council, only after master Yoda. He also lead the 212 jedi in the Battle of Geonosis, and... KILLED JANGO FETT, one of the most feared bounty hunters in the galaxy, who is very, very famously known for killing MANY, MANY Jedi. Plus, Obi Wan failed to defeat him. Mace Windu should be higher than Dooku, Luke, Vader and Obi wan. - riki1234

He's awesome. Funny how he's the only character to have a purple lightsaber. - IronSabbathPriest

8 Darth Bane Darth Bane Darth Bane is a legendary Sith from Star Wars. Darth Bane was one of the greatest Sith lords who ever lived in the Star Wars universe. Darth Bane's greatest accomplishment was creating the Rule of Two, making the Sith am secretive order with one master and one apprentice. The apprentice would learn more.

Have you not read about him. Hello! the sith would not be that strong without him! -Ginger22

9 Luke Skywalker Luke Skywalker Luke Skywalker is a fictional character appearing as the central protagonist of the original film trilogy, and as a supporting character in the sequel trilogy of the Star Wars universe created by George Lucas.

George Lucas said he is the most powerful Jedi of all time

No question about this one. George Lucas himself said that Luke was the most powerful jedi who ever lived. End of discussion!

Old Luke Skywalker is the most powerful person in Star Wars. Period. Not only was he able to beat Darth Vader when he was YOUNG, but he has accomplished more feats than any other Jedi in the star wars universe. He is feared by the entire First Order and even is capable of force lightning. He conjured up a ghost of himself to challenge Kylo Ren across the GALAXY. He can defeat Vader, Sidious, Yoda, Rey, and anyone else that challenges him.

Number 8? Really? George Lucas said himself that Luke is the most Powerful - PeeledBanana

The Newcomers

? Padme Amidala Padme Amidala Padmé Amidala is a fictional character in the Star Wars franchise, appearing in the prequel trilogy portrayed by actress Natalie Portman.

One of the more durable star wars characters, she fell from a spaceship around 100 feet and was only stunned for a few minutes and she had no scratches or bruises and was seemingly unharmed. She also took hits from Nexu which could take out droids with a single swipe and push over pillars, and she sustained minor injuries from it. Padme could take Leia's hits all day.

She was so beautiful which became a tool in manipulation. She also is arguably superhuman physically able to drop from great heights without no sign of injury or fatigue making her one of the most durable as well as beating anakin in an wrestling match and surviving a bloodlusted Anakin's force choke while pregnant. She also does not have the small stature of Leia as she stands over 6 inches taller than Leia as well as having a larger and more feminine build.

Sure her character may have not been well written but she was no slouch. She basically has Leia's intellectual capabilities while being much taller and built far better for combat. She also was known for her unmatched beauty with the only few coming close being Leia, Mara Jade, and Juno Eclipse.

Padme is very powerful. While Leia is stronger Padme is more durable. I do think that Padme's durability advantage is huge compared to Alexia's advantage and it will take more than blunt force to harm Padme. Also Padme is just much taller and better built being 5'6 compared to Leia's 4'11 stature.


The Contenders

11 Count Dooku Count Dooku Count Dooku of Serenno, from the House of Dooku is a fictional character from the Star Wars franchise, appearing in Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones and Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith as a primary and minor antagonist respectively. He was portrayed by Christopher Lee and more.

Lol he’s very powerful.

But had power failure and that must have hurt him

SARUMAN! He's more powerful than Obi wan

12 Admiral Motti

Admiral Motti was the stockiest man in the galaxy, and could have ruled the Empire if he really desired to. Tarkin and Motti started to grapple, the two briefly struggled but Motti was stronger, not only was he much bigger and taller, his bones were stronger making him stronger. Tarkin was pushed on the ground, Motti now was on top of him about to punch him. Tarkin gauged at Motti's eyes, saving his life for the moment, until Motti lifted up Tarkin and threw him against the ground once again on the ground. Tarkin tried but he could not get the young man off, Motti had a warrior's build being 6'5 and over 220 lbs of muscle. Tarkin heard his bones crack as Motti started choking Tarkin until finally killing him. Motti went to Vader as Vader choked him, Motti started gasping for 10 minutes before clobbering Vader with his superior frame. Motti was choked by the Emperor for 40 minutes until being durable enough to survive it and killing the emperor. Motti now ruled the Empire, the end.

He stole the show by surviving Vader's death grip

While Motti can't dish out tremendous amounts of damage he can take it. Can Motti survive the force push, yes and the choke as well. In the choke scene one can see an angry Vader attempt to choke Motti in which results in an struggle with Motti at first taking the choke with no hand up to clutch due to the fact Vader's choke was so weak. However Motti was getting annoyed by it so he put an hand up to his throat to prye off Vader's grip until Tarkin thought it was childish. Vader had failed in many ways with first being making himself look immature, and second being that Motti knew the extent of his abilities, and knew that his throat could withstand Vader's grip. What people forget is that Vader is not an op character but rather an armored old man who has a fetish for choking people with the force. Case closed Motti won

He was in one of the best scenes in one of the greatest films ever. He didn't care about the force and spoke up to Vader anyways before immaturely being cut off by Vader with an powerful force choke as Vader stated "I find your lack of faith disturbing" before Tarkin interfered after witnessing the long struggle between the young man and the cyborg and thinking Vader of being immature. Not only did Motti survive he did so in front of everyone embarrassing Vader who claimed to be god like in power when he was struggling to choke an officer.

13 Darth Nihilus Darth Nihilus
14 General Grievous General Grievous General Grievous is a fictional character and antagonist in the Star Wars franchise. He served as the Supreme Commander of the Confederacy of Independent Systems' Droid Armies during the Clone Wars.

If you know well controlled Lightsaber do not have to fear it, but if you do not - screwed - nothing escapes

Grievous is awesome! His four lightsabers make him a powerful enemy. - IronSabbathPriest

15 Darth Revan Darth Revan Revan is a fictional character in BioWare's Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic video game. The character may be either male or female, though Revan is canonically male and follows the game's light-side path. He also has his own Old Republic book in which he is a male human, turned Jedi, and turned more.

Darth Revan could breath Luke Skywalker, obi Wan Kenobi and Darth Vader easily.

He should be at least 15. This list is silly - riki1234

16 Darth Malgus Darth Malgus

WHAT? WHY IS HE SO LOW - riki1234

17 Snoke Snoke
18 R2-D2 R2-D2 R2-D2 or Artoo-Detoo is a fictional robot character in the Star Wars universe created by George Lucas, who appears in the original trilogy, the prequel trilogy, and the sequel trilogy.
19 Darth Maul Darth Maul Darth Maul is a fictional character in the science fiction franchise Star Wars. Trained as Darth Sidious's first apprentice, he serves as a Sith Lord and a master of wielding a double-bladed lightsaber. Darth Maul first appeared in Star Wars Episode 1 The Phantom Menace, and has also appeared in The more.
20 Kylo Ren Kylo Ren Kyle Ren is a fictional Sith lord, who is strong with the Force. Kylo Ren commands the First Order with a temper as fiery as his unconventional lightsaber. His debut was in 2015's Star Wars VII: The Force Awakens. Ren's real identity is Ben Solo, the son of Han Solo and Princess Leia. He was trained more.

Kylo is very underrated and is PRETTY good. However, his abiliteies are no match for at least 38 jedi and 44 sith, and even boba or jangon could take hi down... with help, of course! - riki1234

21 Rey Rey Rey is a fictional character in the Star Wars franchise, portrayed by British actress Daisy Ridley. First appearing as the central character in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Rey is a scavenger who was left behind on the planet Jakku when she was a child, and later becomes involved with the Resistance's more.
22 Darth Vitate

He manipulated glactic affairs for 1500 years and ruled the galaxy he was only defeated with a glactic wide rebbelllion at the age of ten he striped sith lord dramath of his power and mind

23 Mara Jade Skywalker Mara Jade Skywalker Mara Jade Skywalker is a character in the Star Wars universe. She originally served as The Emperor's Hand to Emperor Palpatine during the reign of the Galactic Empire. After the Emperor's death, Mara Jade went on to become a smuggler. Later, she became a Jedi, and eventually married Luke Skywalker. more.

While not matching the crazy raw power of her husband Luke and his family such as his father and sister she was still an extremely powerful being. She still contended with Cadeus and arguably would have killed him had she not been distracted. She also has good durability feats like being force choked by powerful beings, stabbed, and thrown through walls and pillars while always getting back up. I will say that she has more raw power than suit Vader and was easily the better duelist than him. I will argue that she is one of the best duelist of all time. She is also nearly Op in power only being weaker to members of the Skywalker family by blood or yoda or palp.

One of the most powerful force users ever. The red hair beauty is capable of taking in what she can dish, giving her superhuman durability.

Luke's beloved wife is one of the most powerful force weilders ever to live. She was best known for her extreme durability, in which she was able to survive explosions stabs and force chokes.

Very powerful, and extremely durable!

Standing at over 6 feet tall, and weighing 150 pounds, Holdo is by far the tallest and strongest female in Star Wars. Many were intimidated by her because of her height. Leia in particular is a mere 5'1, would easily lose to Holdo in a fight.
